you're watching r.t. coming to live from moscow these are the top stories hopes fate of finding any more survivors from russia's oil rig disaster which doesn't still missing two days after a drilling platform sank in icy waters that's as the last of the fourteen crewmembers found alive and just arrived back on land. signed a fracture within the syrian opposition while someone called the government's decision to let observers into the country other slammed the deal with the arab league there instead of calling for an arab military intervention to protect civilians while the syrian authorities persist there fighting extremist armed
groups. north koreans are paying their last respects to the longstanding leader kim jong il and that's as the neighbors of the reduce of nuclear states stay on high alert fearing his death will spark instability in the region. and three months since the start of the protests in the u.s. the occupy movement is still gaining momentum that's the spider police have a hand in this and some critics claiming the rallies would never last into the winter. the next next guys are in states of herbert zoom in on the victims of banking fraud and the kaiser report that's next. max kaiser this is the kaiser report yeah we got a lot of very interesting comments based on my exploding eyeball stacey herbert
tell us about it well first we'll look at this i bet you he's checking the phone book right now for all the djimi diamonds that's the max an aider you see there max that's fantastic i'd like to make a movie like that where i roam the streets looking for banking terrorists with like some huge. fifty caliber weapon and stuff both shoulders you know looking for these guys tearing them down shooting them all mulling them all down well the top comic comes some elite one to eighties on you tube when he said max is the terminator with one mission in mind take out j.p. morgan goldman sachs citibank wall street bank of england the rep tilly george bush and tony blair my local police force scumbags david cameron before i run out of space max just finished the mission you were assigned to. baby the maxim nater there should be
a film on my film but there does seem one organization in the employ of the max and mater and that's fitch fitch goes on major bank downgrade rampage fits just cut the viability ratings of eight major banks that downgraded bank of america barclays b.m.p. perry goldman sachs credit suisse deutsche bank society general and it affirmed the viability rating of u.b.s. failed to take down j.p. morgan. well they're kind of like the french based outfit and i think this is in response to some p. and moody's which are more u.s. based so now the rating agencies have got involved in the ratings war and oh. the currency war but what's remarkable to me is that two years ago or three years ago when it would have been valuable to downgrade those banks at that time when their balance sheets were exploding in the shadow banking system and off balance sheet toxic liabilities that would've been helpful but now that the world is trying to recover from the realisation of these toxic debts off balance sheet then
rumpelstiltskin fitch moody's and s. and p. finally wakes up and applies a negative rating at the worst possible time it's as if they're purposefully trying to destroy the economy which i guess based on everything we're hearing from these club to chronic megalomaniacs that's exactly what they're trying to do fitch says despite the significant progress it sees the banks have made in building up capital and liquidity buffers to resist market changes fitch reports that these banks are sensitive to high volatility a low confidence in the markets that's kind of way to fight in these markets so it's a little bit worrying that they're saying about it and so in fact there is no confidence if these banks themselves weren't so engaged in so many fraudulent activities and stealing so many of their customers funds maybe there will be a little bit more confidence in the markets did point stop stealing customer funds global j.p. morgan and we'll see whether confidence returns those are two banks that are not
actually listed here i'm talking also about bank of america talk about barclays bank people goldman sachs credit suisse deutsche bank in society general here max oh i got a story about goldman sachs ok well let's say that very next year two thousand and twelve ok if you're not for this what's your story about goldman sachs well they're in trouble because they tried to issue a fake sue coupons islamic finance a court of the f. cking goldman sachs's try to fit pawn off a fake bond in this islamic finance world they got some shyster moolah to give it the ok even though it didn't. pli was sariah law and they thought they had trouble before forget about movies much of s. and p. way into low down words goldman sachs they could have that fatwa rating that it doesn't look so good for them then why can't they come out the fatwah writing clients of the debt of all these banks goldman sachs has definitely got a very low while waiting at this time boy oh boy there who is
a author that's running around ok well let's move on to these currency wars you know fitch is a french company and it was convenient that just recently s. and p. was threatening to downgrade french debt so it's now full out raiding currency war this is going into more like the great depression this is like these are the events leading up to the great depression one here is great depression two france loses credit rating it should be the u.k. head of central bank hits out as tensions rise and london in paris and this is the head of the central bank of france christian noir and he says france is bracing itself for the potential loss of its cobbett aaa rating after two credit rating agencies last week indicated they were considering marking down countries across the eurozone but bank to france governor christian neuer said they should instead be looking at the u.k. because of the scale of debt and inflation and the poor levels of growth and bank
lending on this side of the channel well is absolutely correct and let me explain something to the audience they response from the u.k. to christian noyer who said that the u.k. should be downgraded not france the response from the u.k. was like well the markets think otherwise the markets are giving our guilt our sovereign bond market a lower yield due to higher demand the markets are saying the opposite of you christian noir that's absolute poppycock what the u.k. fails to mention is that the reason guilds are yielding so low is because the bank of england is engaged in quantitative easing which just means. the bank of england is buying its own bonds it's eating its own vomit and for that reason the ills are low whereas the e.c.b. is not engaging in quantitative easing the big debate around the world today is that the world wants the e.c.b. to engage in quantitative easing to borrow back its own bonds as to buy back the
bonds of very sovereign countries in the e.u. as a way to play ball with these financial terrorists well maybe france and germany say you know what we do want to play ball financial terms like mervyn king over in the u.k. maybe we'd like to have more of a sustainable economy based on general organic growth not just financial terrorist like you find the city of london like you find now who's getting really is clock cleaned is the fellow over there at r.b.s. who's now really in deep trouble because they found out that he's been breaking all kinds of laws but let's stay on this war going on between britain and france because there i have several headlines here so here's another headline from the french minister is attacking david cameron they've gone all out on this i guess during election season coming up and also this war that david cameron apparently started with the french better to be french the british says french finance minister and here is a little video clip of him francois our own of the moment. when those who could.
get a situation we couldn't be due to go on with the tool to eat poop to complete for the twins who put that you can smooch with we couldn't be pulled over to. the school. to go to work of course any sane person would rather be french and british just look at a recent study that came out about facebook users seventy five percent of british facebook users feature photos of themselves drunk. ok that should tell you something about that country all the policy makers are drunk mervyn king is mostly in the bag all the people who are trying to do business over there in the city of london are for the most part in the abbreviated well for more french people pile on here doom and gloom i.m.f. boss says every economy is that risk as britain's credit rating is threatened. so this is christine legarde she's the managing director of the i.m.f. and she's issued a stark warning to world markets by claiming the future is gloomy and every economy
in the world is at risk her comments came as tensions between london and paris where heightened further after the head of france the central bank suggested that the u.k. was a candidate for a credit rating downgrade no country in the g twenty has a higher jet to debt to g.d.p. ratio than the u.k. it's a thousand percent it's just that the banking industry alone has debts to g.d.p. of five hundred percent times five times g.d.p. you're telling me that that is a bond market in a stock market and an economy you want to invest in and wants is a little big bubble burst in a few months and you'll see that economy collapse speaking last week lugard said there is no economy in the world whether low income countries emerging markets middle income countries or super advanced economies that will be immune to the crisis that we see not only unfolding but escalating so here you have partly this war going on between france and britain and also you have going on max you have the
i.m.f. seeking to introduce some sort of world global government by causing global fear well that's the of course kristie like it is playing a two sided game here she'd love to bring in a world governance and the special drawing right as the global currency to replace the u.s. dollar now this of course should be protested against but who's going to stop them as a going to be the in the abbreviated brits i don't think so this. the job for the occupy movements and the protester time magazine person of the year to defeat this new world order initiative by christine lagarde of course so she can't be trusted as far as it could throw or you have but nobody can max and it's really this childlike behavior going on as the last resort when all else fails you throw mud pies at each other on the playground right it's a roast beef versus the frogs going on so the final headline here max and this first half nicolas sarkozy obsessive david cameron acting like stubborn child
sarkozy said cameron behaved like an obstinate kid with a single obsession protecting the city which wants to carry on behaving like an offshore center no country supported him and all the tories in the u.k. are big babies because they're all born with silver spoons in their mouth they never worked a day in their life they got these public schools look at boris johnson the mayor of london the biggest baby of all none of them can be trusted they're immature they don't know anything about financing about like the markets they take all the advice from shysters in the city of london and then the camera is on the way out he's not going to be reelected he's not going to make it maybe the tories will be but he's gone as a party later well this is an important story however max for the united states in the us citizen and the taxpayer of the united states because one thing that is never addressed here in the u.s. market is just how much london plays how crucial a role it plays in the fraud and the and the theft of u.s.
investors and taxpayers all of the a.i.g. fraud happened through there all of bernie made off fraud happened through there all of lehman's fraud happened through there and now all of m.f. global's for odd happened through there and i have some stories in the second half relating to what it actually means i am staying for the second i have that's fantastic so in the second half we're going to really dive into the u.k. as world headquarters of financial fraud no not that what i'm saying is that i would like to cover what. impact all of these fraudsters play what sort of role they play in actually decimating the livelihoods and life experience of people around the world with the result of all the fraud that we're talking about and the result of the in action the buffoonery the clownish behavior of star cozy calling cameron an obstinate kid and cameron calling him a frog or whatever it's just childlike behavior when the real world crisis is real for other people it's not
banking terrorism we'll focus on these as much but let's get into it stacy yes well in the first half we talked about the global fraud going on with the bankers and this sharod these games of downgrades let's look at the actual real life downgrade the lives of people around the world in particular in the u.s. the scandal of the alabama poor cut off from water so remember jefferson county alabama has filed for bankruptcy the largest in the u.s. history and what happened is they set out to build a three hundred million dollar sewage system and lo and behold walked in j.p. morgan with some credit derivatives to sell them interest rate swaps which turned that three hundred million dollar sewage system into a three point one billion dollar sewage system so they have now gone bankrupt alabama one of the poorest in all the whole u.s. has also one of the highest water rates and all of the u.s. we're going to look at some of the stories tammy lucas is the human face of
a financial and political scandal that has brought one of the most deprived communities in america south to the point of what some local people believe is collapse she says quote if the sewer bill gets higher my light might get cut off and if i try to catch up the lie my water might get cut off so where in between we can't make it like this so her average monthly sewage bill the amount levied by the county to flush away waste to provide water for baths and showers has quadrupled in the past fifteen years ok so what we're saying here is that banks steal money from the economy using derivatives and other fraudulent devices that have their mame nexus of transactions in the city of london. real people. in real communities suffering real hardship as the result of this kone in wealth larceny that's happening and these folks are like bolivia you know
their water supply was privatized by bechtel they eventually overturned that because they went to war with bechtel these days so these people if they look around the world for inspiration about what to do they need to go to war with the banks if they unless they want to be basically shut off like the american indians were two hundred years ago into reservations and starve to death i mean that's what that's what goldman sachs and j.p. morgan wants they want to create a new reservation for these poor people well this woman mrs lucas she says that her water bill currently runs at one hundred fifty dollars a month so member the average food stamp amount that you receive is about one hundred fourteen dollars so it costs more to flush it away then to actually consume the food you're given remember j.p. morgan runs the food stamp program so they have two ways to read off the pour not only do they create a food stamp program that debases the currency and makes it impossible for anyone
to break out of poverty then they use their other their investment banking side to create ten times the municipal debt needed to put in a simple sewage system so these people are without a sewage system so they're living like you know any really impoverished poor third world country you look at haiti what's happened in haiti they had of course an earthquake that caused massive poverty down in these country counties in the south of america it was the earthquake called j.p. morgan and goldman sachs and this is part of the conflict that you see going on between france and britain as well because britain has adopted a hyper u.s. financial model the french people don't want that which is why sarkozy and his ministers have to fight against it but this is the consequence this is the next step this is what you're going to see. british people living like soon enough they talk to a guy who doesn't want to be named and he's one of the growing number in the area that now has a blue portable toilet next to it he says he finds it cheaper to buy drums of water
from a petrol station and pay a senate taishan company about fourteen dollars a month to remove waste from his porta potti then pay the combined sewer and water rate which some months can reach three hundred dollars exactly the british society and the british economy is collapsing due to the terrorists in the city of london and that's why the signal from the looters that were out on the prowl a few months ago to number ten downing street was mis misheard they should have understood that those looters were trying to make a good point there that if you allow looting at the top expect looting at the bottom and you're destroying your economy by allowing this looting to go on david cameron george osborne so you reap what you sow my friend you know the water and sewage rates were due to go a point two percent per year for the next three areas but that is now more likely to be ten percent a year or more some are saying that it might go up as much as twenty five percent according to the a court appointed receiver john as young so in response sheila tyson a community activist says quote these people are going to end up writing about this
if they let this stuff happen they are going to get the biggest riot the south has ever seen over the sewer business i can see it coming well absolutely it's a civil war is brewing between the rich and the poor and this is going to happen in the us it'll explode quite dramatically at some point i wouldn't dissipate and of course there are over two hundred fifty million guns in that country saw it add a little spice and flavor to it before i move on to the next example of what it's like to be a victim of fraud i want to note here the two tiered justice system going on because investment bank j.p. morgan securities in two of its former directors have faced civil fines for bribing county officials at jefferson county where i was twenty one of those four. the commissioner is and you know executives in the in the jefferson county have been found guilty or are facing criminal charges so there are two different systems of justice here if you're
a banker you the most you ever face are civil fines right the bankers are the madams they're the ones who are operating the brothel and they're the ones who should be charged first don't blame the the but the johns the buyers of the service of prostitution get rid of the prostitutes get rid of morgan and goldman and just b.c. and barclays and all those other banks get rid of the madams the brothels the drug dens the terror dens of those you say you're blaming the victim that's right you also work for the terrorists so i well let's move on to the m.f. global fraud and see some of the victims every because a lot of people have no sympathy they're saying that these are just the gambling sort they shouldn't bet money they can't lose and here n.p.r. speaks to a rancher to ski who is a rancher a small rancher has a cattle ranch and here is his story rancher discusses losing money with m.f.
global the bankruptcy of m.f. global and the mismanagement of his clients' money is causing trouble for a lot of ranchers and farmers they were major clients of m.f. global buying futures contracts to hedge against swings in the value of their crops and livestock this is why to risk he says it's the opposite of gambling it was actually being more prudent in protecting his income so here that n.p.r. asked how do you feel about investing in the futures market now or have no problems whatsoever and i don't see how anybody could because basically what i openly it is that i had a segregated account with m.f. global they were the brokerage with the stroke of a computer to somebody you know and more money so i pushed very sure more and i have no program to do i could never do it any other brokerage. and i had a. educate don't worry gracious i did want to invest in european and i didn't want to invest in america a very i know can do with your business but you're still more money that's the bottom or you know i have to figure out how to get
a pair right well let's explain something to the audience here about features contracts they came into existence really going back to their origins for the most part to give farmers a way to take some of the risk out of farming farming being a risky business because crops are subject to wide price volatility as relates to something very unpredictable called the weather so farmers by able to sell their crops and a future price today take some of that risk out now there are people on the other side of the train who are going to speculate that the it's a body at that price ok that's the futures market then in one nine hundred eighty s. that basic industry that serve agriculture was adopted by financial futures treasury bonds and currencies and that was the beginning of the meltdown that goes back to the beginning of financial futures they replace agricultural futures as the main driver of business and finance around the world now the tail is wagging the dog in
the financial futures are pushing out the legitimate businesses like the farmer and saying well you know you don't put enough into this economy because we are now our cancer that is sixty to seventy percent of the economy's financial futures trading we don't need farming anymore we can all just eat twinkies you know we don't need you get out of the way so this is how the encroachment of the of the stock recy the worst amongst us has invaded the public domain and the general and real economy with their financial futures derivative trading nightmare yeah and just as the fraud at j.p. morgan is causing people to turn to porta potties throughout the south here is a man who now has no access to his thirty thousand dollars and is a futures account. which m.f. global's not returning calls he said he's not able to get any information at all nobody has ever called him the only information he gets is by googling global he has to search to see what the news is i watch the show yeah but or check out again
j.p. morgan look at the treatment j.p. morgan has received from m.f. global in fact they had heads up they had early notice that the firm was going bankrupt and that's why they were able to seize all the client funds to make sure that their debts owed by m.f. global were paid off here's a man who has no way to get his cash it's it's uncertain whether or not he can continue to exist as a viable business well that's a good point i mean there is the money is not available to these customers is because the person lending the money to corazon j.p. morgan is not letting any of that money back to the customer accounts that were actively involved with m.f. global is a j.p. morgan is the one who let john corazon rack up forty to one leverage he he was going back to the window and saying i need more money to borrow from morgan and morgan's kept lending him money then you would assume that that would mean taking a risk but when he went out of business they suffer no risk they wanted to the
customer accounts and took it from customers so of course once of patsy for jamie diamond jamie diamond is really the lead bad guy and villain in the story but max also there's the c.m.e. group and normally in this situation they would have covered the funds they would have provided the liquidity for customers who had legitimate accounts there and chicago is the center of this is where the futures trading for real farmers and ranchers started since it went public a few years ago now they're only servicing the big guys like j.p. morgan and m.f. global those guys get away with all the crime while the victims of course are at the other side of the trade which are the real ranchers and farmers and that's like the last of anything real production in america and if that goes then all you have is j.p. morgan and john kors sign. we're trading with each other and eventually they're all and on some zingo related virtual finance game in cyberspace trading zingo dollars and taking their or their exhaust of their of their fraud public just dead
for a few billion dollars trading virtual nothings for virtual nothing currency and one last quick headline census shows one in two people are poor or low income in america now fully half of americans qualify as poor or low income now all these farmers being wiped out via the c.m.e. group m m f global member one thing that did exist in the first great depression where many small farms which you could often get food they would help you out and feed you their cattle but now they're being wiped out and just going to be a one giant santa archer cargill sort of big giant monopolist farm that they're not going to feed you they're going to let you die you know it's remarkable i just saw statistic is that half of america is you know at or below the poverty line but i just did a survey forty three percent of americans don't see any wealth or income gap in america so i think goes back to that study that that came out just a few weeks ago that people who watch fox news are actually less informed than
people who watch no news at all ses or ever thanks much for being on the kaiser report thank you max and that's going to do it for this edition of the kaiser report with me max kaiser and stacy herbert you're going to send us an e-mail please do so at kaiser reported r t t v are you still next on this is nice guys are saying.
